    Varlamov (groin) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Impact

    Varlamov doesn't have a clear timetable for his return, so Jonathan Bernier will be the de facto No. 1 in Colorado with Andrew Hammond available in a pinch. While he's having a decent season -- including a 13-9-2 record, 2.87 GAA and .912 save percentage -- Varlamov continues to frustrate his fantasy owners due to his injury woes. He's undergone multiple hip surgeries and had to overcome a groin ailment in the 2016-17 campaign.

    News

    Varlamov will be sidelined for "the foreseeable future" due to a groin strain, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

    Impact

    The Avalanche are hopeful that Varlamov will resume skating prior to the All-Star break, which means he'll miss Colorado's next seven games at a minimum. Jonathan Bernier will take over the starting gig until Varlamov is cleared to return. The Russian netminder will almost certainly be placed on injured reserve for the duration of his absence.

    News

    Varlamov (lower body) will miss Colorado's next two games, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.

    Impact

    Varlamov should benefit from having a week off thanks to the Avalanche's bye week and could be ready to return Jan. 13 versus the Stars. Before getting injured, the netminder made a perfect 21 of 21 possible saves against the Jets on Tuesday, but was unable to finish the game and missed out on potentially recording his second shutout of the 2017-18 campaign. For now, Jonathan Bernier should get the bulk of the minutes in Varlamov's absence.

    News

    According to coach Jared Bednar, Varlamov (lower body) is day-to-day with a muscular injury that is not considered serious, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    Impact

    It's unclear what this means for Varlamov's availability heading into Thursday's matchup with Columbus, but the team did call up Andrew Hammond from AHL Belleville in order to provide extra depth in the event Varlamov can't give it a go. While the team has not provided any confirmation as to who might start against the Blue Jackets, it would seem likely Jonathan Bernier gets the nod to give the starter Varlamov some extra time off.

    News

    Varlamov is expected to miss at least two more weeks with a groin strain.

    Impact

    The Avs are hoping Varlamov can get back before the All-Star break after he felt some soreness after making a move in net Jan. 2 against Winnipeg. Jonathan Bernier figures to get most of the starts in Varlamov's absence.
